One of the more competitive matches the Charger women's tennis team has seen this season unfolded Friday night at the Margot V. Biermann Center. But, like the three matches before this one, it ended with a Hillsdale win.

The Chargers knocked off the University of Illinois-Springfield 5-2 in a regional home matchup. Hillsdale improves to 4-0 on the season with the win, while handing the Prairie Stars (5-2) just their second loss of the season.

A few Charger players breezed to their wins, while some other flights needed multiple hours to finish play.

Junior Kamryn Matthews was a double winner, easily winning at No. 5 singles 6-1, 6-1. Earlier, she teamed up with her partner Madeline Bissett for a 6-3 win at No. 3 doubles.

All three Charger doubles teams were victorious, earning the team the doubles point.

Sarah Hackman and Hannah Cimpeanu outlasted UIS in a 7-6 win at No. 1 doubles. Halle Hyman and Katie Bell teamed up for a 6-4 win at No. 2 doubles.

Hyman won for the second time on the night, rallying for a 5-7, 6-4, 6-3 win at No. 4 singles. Senior Corinne Prost was effective in a 6-2, 6-2 win at No. 6 singles. Bell also picked up two wins on the night, edging her foe 7-6, 6-2 at No. 3 singles. Cimpeanu lost a marathon match at No. 1 singles despite battling the flu.
